Robotics Senior with Steam Powered Kids

Jackson Extracurricular -
2023 Jackson Winter-Spring Extras

Robotics club serves as an extracurricular enrichment program that encourages the exploration and application of STEAM based principals through building and programming robots for elementary students grades 4-5. No previous experience with robotics is necessary. Returning students will be given the freedom to build upon past experiences on new platforms and challenges. Activities focus on honing critical thinking skills, perseverance and teamwork as students learn to program, use sensors and design attachments.

For the spring 2023, we will explore the world of Battle Bots and compete in our own TRI ROBOTICS SUMO CUP! Teams of students will compete to out program, out design and out build their peers. There will be a friendly competition between Sarah Smith Elementary, Warren T. Jackson and Springdale Elementary at the end of the term.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN TIME. Since there is no FLL competition in the Spring, Senior robotics ends 30 min earlier.

Using the LEGO MINDSTORM EV3 platform, students will learn programming and building skills that will translate nicely to the FLL competition we compete in each Fall. For those not necessarily interested in competing in the SUMO challenge, there will be options to build a host of helper bots as well as the robotic arena itself.

Hexbug Nanos, Spheros, as well as a couple of new surprises will make guest appearances throughout the season.
